Logo Designs - Japanese Calligraphy
Japanese Calligraphy that is really well done will draw attention and can go a long way to communicate your corporate image and values.
Consumers have become increasingly sophisticated and poor quality calligraphy is likely to have a negative impact. Put another way, with the widespread use of kanji in the marketplace, consumers have learned to appreciate and respect beautiful and well-crafted designs.
This is why the best advice you can have is to find the very best Japanese Calligrapher that you can. Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri
Takase is specially trained as a professional calligrapher and has over ten
years experience in commercial calligraphy design. To see examples of Eri Takase's commercial
designs visit Japanese Calligraphy in Graphic Design.

The Design Process
To create the best possible design you will be working directly with Master Takase and both native English and Japanese translators who will provide as much (or as little) documentation as you need to be comfortable with the translation.
Using your description, Master Takase will start by creating an initial set that includes translation options and sample designs that show how the translations might look in the design. Each design set, including this initial set, is hand-lettered by Master Takase. And with each set we are happy to provide you with as much documentation as you need to be completely comfortable with the translation.
With your feedback we should have a good idea of what is working well and will then incorporate your feedback into a new design set. We continue to work with you, showing designs with explanations and getting your feedback until the design is just right. Normally this takes two or three sets of designs.
To give you an idea of how this process works, we documented the creation of an actual logo design, from first contact to the delivery of the final design, at An Example of the Logo Design Process.
We offer a variety of options for the delivery of the final product. The basic offering is for
digital delivery of the design as a high resolution JPG file. Though we can
provide the design in other formats (e.g. PSD, or TIFF) email. We also have
options for mailing the original design, or one can select both of these delivery options.
We also offer optional matching artwork by Master Takase that is on handmade Japanese paper. Because these are hand-made works of art, the match will not be perfect but every effort will be made to match the original.
Optionally matching artwork, suitable for framing may be ordered.
Please feel free to Eri@Takase.com with any questions and we look forward to the opportunity to work with you.
